Narcissus Hillstar produces 2 to 3 blossoms per 12 to 14-inch stem in a reverse bi-color process. The 2¾ inch wide blossoms have short funnel-shaped cups that start off in an almost uniform lemon yellow. After about a week a white halo begins to show around each trumpet and after another week or so the trumpets turn to a creamy white as well. This colorful process contrasts well with the slender, dark-green foliage of the bulb. Blooming in mid to late spring, Hillstar is noted for performing well in our area with its hot summers and milder winters.
